PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "The biggest mobile developer study in history with 6,000 respondents from 115 countries says that while iOS developers make an average of $5,200 per month in app revenue and Android developers pull in $4,700, more developers plan to start developing for Windows Phone than any other platform. [...] That's aided, of course, by the fact that 71 percent of mobile developers are already developing for Android, and 56 percent are already developing for iOS." I'm surprised there's so little difference between income for iOS and Android developers. Reading the web, it often seems as if all iOS developers are millionaires and Android developers are poor unwashed peasants. Reality is, clearly, different.

This study still cannot explain the enormous difference in web-use statistics between the various platforms. The fact remains that iOS users actually USE the apps, data functions and internet functions of their smartphones far more than other platforms. Android users may buy close to the same amount of apps but they end up not using those apps as much for some reason. The question arises as to how usability factors into it. Or what are the other factors that contribute to the difference in use among the platforms.


Not anymore. Samsung recently overtook Apple in web statistics - just Samsung, so it doesn't even count the rest of Android.
